Christmas Roundup efforts to kick off Monday meeting

An organizational meeting for the 2009 Christmas Roundup has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16 at the MARC Center, 1705 Pecos Street, in Rockdale.

"Individuals who are interested in helping with this worthwhile project are invited to attend," said Ann King, spokesperson.

Christmas Roundup provides food and toys to families who are in need of assistance in the Rockdale and surrounding area. Last year more than 300 families were served by this organization, King said.

Applications will be available on Nov. 23 at The Rockdale Reporter, Lucy Hill Patterson Memorial Library, One-Stop Center, Rockdale Police Station, all Rockdale financial institutions, Chamber of Commerce, Rockdale City Hall and local churches.

Deadline to nominate families or individuals who are in need of assistance this Christmas will be Monday, Dec. 7.

If you have questions contact, Ann King at 446-3773 or gaking@sbcglobal.net.
